Places covered in the tour.
Day 1 - Kathmandu
Welcome to Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. You fly into this place, feasting your eyes on the magnificent view of the Himalayan ranges.
Before your untold journey in this dreamily beautiful country unfolds, we introduce ourselves to each other with an ice-breaking session, soon after we land.
Then we check-in, dine, relax and turn in early, so that you are perfectly rejuvenated for an amazing expedition around Nepal.
DAY 2 - Kathmandu
After a filling breakfast, our first stop is the Pashupatinath Hindu Temple. Designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1979, this is not just a place of worship but also a combination of art, architecture and culture. At this temple, on the banks of Bagmati river, you can explore close to 492 temples, 15 Shivalayas (shrines of Lord Shiva) and 12 Jyotirlinga (phallic shrines).
From here, we take a stimulating stroll around the energetically charged, Bouddhanth Stupa, another UNESCO World Heritage site. Watch the devotees circumambulating the 36 meter high stupa, light a lamp, offer prayers, or observe the 108 meditational Buddha images inset behind copper prayer wheels on a brick wall at the ground level of the stoupa.
It’s time for lunch and some rest before we go exploring Lalitpur, Patan and the famous Durbar Square, only 30 minutes away from the hotel.
Unlike any other popular squares in the world, the Durbar Square gives you the feeling of having walked back in time when you enter it.
Closed to cars and any other form of transport, you can walk and shop around here without worry; admiring the ancient royal palaces, courtyards, artistically designed temples, monasteries and shops adorned with exquisite metal works and woodcarvings by the renowned Newari craftsmen of Nepal.
The Durbar Square also houses the Patan Museum, a beautiful stone temple of Krishna and the Mahaboudha – a shikhar style temple made of terracotta, with one thousand images of Buddha.
From here, our last stop of the day is the Swayambhunath Stupa filled with chaityas, statues and shrines of Buddhist and Hindu deities. Built in 460 AD by King Mahadeva, the stupa is the oldest in Nepal. Enjoy a panoramic view of the entire city from the top of this shrine, which is also accessible by a motor road for tourists you can’t use the steep steps.
We have dinner and spend another night in the city.
DAY 3 - Kathmandu to Chitwan
After a good night’s rest, we head to Chitwan, around 180 km away and reach there in about 5 hours. En route, you can go river rafting or take a cable car ride to the Manakamna temple.
We check-in, have dinner and spend the night here.
DAY 4 - Chitwan
After breakfast, it’s time for an adventurous day at the Chitwan National Park. Here, you may get up-close with a variety of animals, birds and reptiles including the greater one-horned rhinoceros, the great Asiatic elephants, and gharial and marsh mugger crocodiles.
Choose your escapades from the plethora of options available: Jeep Safari, Elephant Safari, bird watching or silently canaoeing or walking through the jungle. Also, enjoy the native folk dance and music of the Terais, a local tribe of Chitwan.
While lunch is en route, we have dinner at the hotel before turning in for the night.
DAY 5 - Chitwan to Pokhara
We drive to Pokhara after breakfast, have lunch on the way and check in to the hotel in about 5 hours. Spend the rest of the day relaxing and rejuvenating from all the physical exertion of previous day.
DAY 6 - Pokhara
Soak in the scenic beauty of Pokhara during a half hour drive to Sarangkot. Once there, you have three hours to immerse yourself in the near-spiritual splendor of this place. Revel in the panoramic sweep of Himalayas, from Dhaulagiri peak in the west to Annapurna II in the east. You can even try paragliding here.
After a short rest back at the hotel, we hop to the Bindabasini Temple, merely 10 minutes away. Built by Kaskeli King Siddhi Narayana Shah, this temple pays homage to the goddess Bhagwati. It is a small Shikhar style temple standing in the middle of a paved courtyard. It also has some fine stone images of Lord Ganesha, Shiva, Hanuman and Goddess Lakshmi, which are worth admiring.
From here, our next stop is Devil’s Fall or David’s Fall, a popular spot where the stream disappears underground. It is called Patale Chango, which means underworld waterfall in Nepali. As it suggests, it is an underwater waterfall with the tunnel running 500 feet long and 100 feet below the ground level.
From here, get ready to lose yourself in the complex labyrinth of the Gupteshwor Mahadev or the cave beneath the tunnel, from where the stream exits.
We call it a day after dinner at the hotel.
DAY 7 - Pokhara to Kathmandu
Have breakfast and drive back to Kathmandu, with lunch en route. After a journey of around 6 hours, the rest of the day is for leisure and rest.
DAY 8 - Depart Kathmandu
Say goodbye to this mystical land of mountains, history and spirituality, and bask in the wonder of numerous untold stories that you take back with you.
